Now this is a missed connection. I’m rooting for these two to find each other. True love is hard to find.

I’m sure that’s not his real name, but this character actor has been working steadily for 15 years (Boyz in the Hood, anyone?) and now has a starring role in The Perfect Holiday.
I guess his (fake) name is fitting, because he’s absolutely edible!!!

Julia makes a rare public appearance at the screening of Charlie Wilon’s War.
This is a woman who’s really managed to age gracefully.
I’d be remiss in my duties if I didn’t mention that she’s put on some weight — and, look, before you guys get all mad at me in the comments, let me say that Julia Roberts weighs less than I do, but this is a gossip blog and she’s a celebrity and this is America and we care about these things here even if we’re not always willing to admit it and if anyone walked into a casting agency for the first time at that weight they’d tell them to come back 15 pounds lighter, and I’d feel like I didn’t deserve my paycheck if I didn’t point that out.
And if you all wanna cuss me out in the comments for saying that, fine, let’s do that, because I think an open conversation about female body standards in this country is crucial, and I’m just going to go ahead and say what everyone else is thinking so at least it’s out there and we can talk about it. So go.
That said, she still looks stunning. Julia Roberts will look stunning when she’s 85, and I hope to look one-tenth as good as she does when I’m her age and a mother.
(But she’s put on weight.)

Here she is in Berlin (checking into the Berlin Hilton), where she recently arrived — after being in Miami, London and Paris — to promote her fragrance, Can-Can.
I am going to say something once, and I may never say it again, so listen carefully:
[BEGINNING OF ONE-TIME BEET STATEMENT]
I am very impressed with how hard Paris has been working to promote this stupid fragrance.
She’s like the anti-Britney right now. While Brit refuses to lift a shaky, nicotine-stained finger to promote her album, Paris is traveling the globe to promote a stupid perfume.
Good work, Paris.
[END OF ONE-TIME BEET STATEMENT]
OMG. That was really hard. I think I need to take a nap now.

Remember how I told you about this???
STRIKES ARE CONTAGIOUS! The WGA strike seems to be giving everyone else the guts to stage their own.
Scores of workers from MTV Networks walked off the job yesterday afternoon, filling the sidewalk outside the headquarters of its corporate parent, Viacom, to protest recent changes in benefits.
The walkout highlighted the concerns of a category of workers who are sometimes called permalancers: permanent freelancers who work like full-time employees but do not receive the same benefits.
Waving signs that read â€œShame on Viacom,â€ the workers, most of them in their 20s, demanded that MTV Networks reverse a plan to reduce health and dental benefits for freelancers beginning Jan. 1.
Pay the employees what they’re owed, Viacom!!!
